    Default From down the Richardson #2

    All is fine, moose is relaxed. Some guys and a kid stop their truck nearby, but the moose's still relaxed:

    The guys and kid start talking, and the moose looks up and then leaves. I got the photos of the moose's rear ends as they walk away, but no need to post that one here Keep in mind that moose off the road don't mind your truck, but the human voice spooks them most times, specially while hunting.

    In reality they can be quite safe if one stays out of their safety zone. This one was perhaps a couple of hundred feet from where I was standing. I placed the camera on top of my truck's hood to take the photos, and the moose didn't mind me at all.

    Sometimes they walk through my backyard and get quite close. Long ago my oldest son, perhaps seven years old then, was playing in the backyard, not paying attention but to what he was doing. It seems that he didn't notice that a moose started feeding just a few feet behind him. He heard a noise, turned around, and there was this moose! He ran to the house and told me, "Dad, a moose came from behind, and got real close to me!" I asked him, "where you scared?" and he said with a serious look in his eyes "no, but my knees were shaking!"

    Yes, it is. I almost bought a 5D on the $300.00 instant rebate, which would have cost $1,800 at B&H. But I changed my mind when I started adding a couple of lenses for it. Bought the 40D instead, and am using most of the lenses I used with my (my wife's) XT

    I had a 18-55 kit lens, and also a EF 35-135mm USM. She kept those with the XT, but so far she hasn't used them one time. Every now and then I recharge the XT's battery so it won't go bad. She seldom takes pictures, but likes to have her own camera, which is OK with me as long as I buy a new one every four years or so

    As long as she doesn't mind, the more lenses the better!
